2017 NFL Draft Profile: Day Three (Rounds 5-7) Linebacker Prospects

5th-7th Round Linebackers
Anthony Walker, Northwestern: SAcouts felt that he played heavy in 2016, and they also are concerned about a lack of overall athleticism. These are not good things.

Steven Taylor, Houston: Has been productive, but very much undersized, and will have to make his mark on special teams to make the cut.

DeVonte Fields, Louisville: Focus is crap. Has been in trouble off of the field mutliple times, including for domestic violence. Got run out of TCU, and was never productive or healthy enough after the fact. A clear avoid tag should be applied.

Tyus Bowser, Houston: Not productive enough in college, and came to the game late. Has missed time for foolish fight with a teammate that resulted in a broken orbital socket. Focus just does not seem to be there.

Connor Harris, Lindenwood: 633 career tackles at Lindenwood. A D1 talent, who was under recruited. He should be a day three pick, and may surprise some people. A real dark horse.

Jordan Herdman, Simon Fraser: May not get drafted at all, and is undersized. Still, productivity was hard to ignore at D2 school. May get a shot on special teams.

Vince Biegel, Wisconsin: Solid team first guy with high character, but has a foot injury history, and limited play strengths.

Hardy Nickerson, Illinois: His father was a legend, but his film is all over the place. May not have the physical skill/discipline combo that is needed on the next level.

Brooks Ellis, Arkansas: Does not possess much in the athleticism/speed area of the game. Was productive enough, but he may just be one of those guys who was a solid college player, and not much else.
